Congregation Shearith Israel was founded in 1904 by a segment of Atlanta's East European Jewish community. When Jews first came to Atlanta from Eastern Europe, in the 1880s, they established Ahavath Achim Congregation for their Orthodox worship. However, as a second generation of immigrants arrived at the turn-of-the-century, they became uncomfortable at Ahavath Achim, because it had become a congregation for second generation East Europeans who wished to Americanize. These new immigrants founded "Shearith Israel," which literally means "the remnant of Israel." This is what these founders considered themselves, the only true Jews left in Atlanta. The collection consists of minutes, 1947 -1974, bulletins, 1959 - 1990, correspondence and various membership rosters. Arranged in alphabetical order by subject and chronologically within each folder. A finding aid is available in the library.
